Where am I now? Where have I been?
|Navigating NYC with some film friends at AAHSFF!|
|Kings Theater in Brooklyn @ AAHSFF Awards!|
2 weeks ago I was in California. Then I was in South Carolina. Then North Carolina. On Wednesday I was in NYC. Yesterday I was in NC. Today I'm in California. Monday I'll be back in NC. Then Thursday I'll be in SC. Then Friday I'll be Seattle. Then the Monday after this coming Monday I'll be in Atlanta. Let that all sink in...... it's insanity... but I LOVE IT.
